Key standard safety features

Euro NCAP safety ratings

  • Four out of five stars (2019) 
  • Adult occupant protection - 91%
  • Child occupant protection - 84%
  • Vulnerable road user protection - 62%
  • Safety assist - 68%

The Peugeot 2008 finished in 53rd place (out of 75) on our list of the best cars to own, which is based on the result of the 2023 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. It didn’t manage to top its chief rival, the best-selling Ford Puma (33rd), but it finished ahead of the Nissan Juke (64th) and Vauxhall Mokka (75th).

As a brand, Peugeot came in ninth spot in our 2023 Driver Power survey's best car manufacturer rankings (out of 32 brands), behind Korean rival Kia, but ahead of Nissan, Skoda, SEAT, Vauxhall, VW, and Renault

Euro NCAP tested the overall safety of the second-generation 2008 in 2019 and awarded it a four-star rating for cars without the safety plus pack, and the full five stars when equipped with it. The more advanced autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system that Allure and GT models get can spot cars, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users, such as cyclists at night, whereas the Active has a basic version of this which can’t do that.

Other standard safety kit includes driver attention alert, lane keep assistance, traffic sign recognition and rear parking sensors. Higher-spec models also get front parking sensors and a reversing camera, while adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection are also available as options.

Warranty

The Peugeot 2008 has a two-year/unlimited mileage warranty from the factory and an extra year from the dealer, adding up to three years. That matches the industry standard, although it can't match Kia’s seven-year cover and Toyota's ten-year package.

Servicing

Petrol-powered 2008s need servicing every 12 months or 12,500 miles, while the Hybrid version still needs an annual service, but can go 16,000 miles between visits.

The electric E-2008 requires an initial service after 12 months or 8,000 miles, whichever comes first, then every two years or every 16,000 miles after that. 

Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing packages to help spread the cost of scheduled maintenance, starting with a three-year/30,000-mile policy that costs around £20 per month for petrol cars, or roughly £11 per month for electric ones.
